Popeyes opens newest Dayton-area restaurant

September 6, 2023

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen opened its newest Dayton-area restaurant on Tuesday, Sept. 5.  The 2,400-square-foot restaurant is located at 6242 Wilmington Pike in Sugarcreek Township, on the site of the former Applebee’s restaurant near Walmart Supercenter and Miami Valley Hospital South in Sugarcreek Twp.

Natalie Jones of Dayton Daily News posted a story this past weekend and said, “The restaurant is part of an expansion effort to build as many as five new stores per year in the Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus markets. The Gilligan Company opened a new restaurant at 5798 N. Springboro Pike in Miami Twp. in March 2022 and another at 6793 Miller Lane in the Vandalia/Butler Twp. area in June 2022.  The Sugarcreek Twp. location features a new prototype with updated lobby décor, a newly designed kitchen and double drive-thru.”

Today, Popeyes operates more than 2,700 locations in the US and worldwide. Popeyes once had multiple locations in the region, but over time the count dwindled to two locations in Harrison Twp. and Springfield.  Cincinnati, OH-based Gilligan Company purchased those two units in 2016 and has since added locations in Englewood, Springboro, Kettering and the two locations mentioned previously in Butler Township near Vandalia, and Miami Township.  New restaurants will open soon in Huber Heights and Xenia.  Gilligan Company is represented by Scott Saddlemire of OnSite Retail Group.  Click here to see photos and read the full story in Dayton Daily News: Popeyes opens newest Dayton-area restaurant
